  • redskins suck… #
  • obama – biden signage with serifs, little weird to see the word obama in a serifed typeface #
  • obama-biden using requiem: #
  • seeing both typefaces together looks a little weird: #
  • though i guess hoefler & frere-jones recommends the two as a complimentary set #
  • fuck yeah daniel dae kim (aka jin from lost) at the obama rally at mile high #
  • gore’s tearing it up. nice mix of his message with the obama support. #
  • quick reformat of my time machine drive and time machine workin’ just fine #
  • @peterrojas watching pbs tonight after major networks all week, it’s night and day…. #
  • u2’s stadium rock is appropriate #
  • barack’s wearing a bespoke suit, it shows… #
  • after i synced and had a long backup, i hit sync immediately (0 changes) and have another long backup, wtf? #
  • this is about as good a policy speech as i have ever heard #
  • after the olympics, these pyrotechnics are LACKING #
  • what’s with the under the breath commentary pbs? #
  • is it me or are the pbs ppl out of focus and the background in focus? fix that DOF #
  • i’m in some kind of time warp, yesterday felt like friday. today feels like friday. #
  • today is as slow as yesterday was fast #
  • so obama goes serif for obama/biden, but mccain goes san serif for mccain/palin: #

  • @holydee can’t ever argue with screen real estate… #
  • @peterrojas is it futura? i’m not an expert, just like font/typesets, but a cursory glance i thought it might be gotham like his first signs #
  • ann curry should not try to be a hard interviewer, i love her, but hot her strong suit #
  • bill’s speech was the one hillary needed to give #
  • a serifed font from obama? for biden? to highlight feelings of security and such? #
  • well superduper running fine, so my external hdd isn’t hosed, must just be my actual time machine backup. time to trash it and start over #
  • – awesomely cute bento boxes via @slashfood #
  • via @slashfood krispy kreme bacon cheddar burger. not going to lie, i’d at least take a bite #
  • @holydee i think they’d be good, savory and sweet in a single bite is good stuff. though i maybe krispy kreme’s are too airy to be good buns #
  • two magazines in a row the post office has totally messed up. i’m half convinced they’re being read first #

  • Wish I had my camera just walked past a lone bat sleeping clinging to a wall at eye level #
  • it’s MUCH too late for PUMA to rebrand themselves as Party Unity, My America. They got a lot of buss for Party Unity My Ass. #

Monty likes the Apple Store

So we’ve been walking monty around the neighborhood and testing how dog friendly the places are. Of all the places, he seems most calm and relaxed at the Apple Store. Maybe because it’s cooler (temperature and ambiance) or the music. He did okay at Crate & Barrel but got kind of riled up. He enjoyed both, but definitely preferred Apple. Maybe dogs do take after their owners.
